State Opera House

The Hungarian State Opera House is the country's most well-known and largest opera house. It is also commonly referred to as the Budapest Operetta. Your Budapest sightseeing bus will drop you off at the Opera House stop on the green line, which is located on the imposing Andrássy Avenue. 

This magnificent example of neo-Renaissance architecture was formerly referred to as the Royal Opera House of Budapest when it was constructed in the year 1884. This is culture at its most elevated level, as seen by the opulently adorned interior, pretentious style, and consistently lavish mood, all of which spell out the same thing. Its enormous auditorium has seating for more than 1200 people, and it is there that everybody and everyone can watch the most recent concerts and operettas. 

You will have the ability, as part of your hop on hop off trip, to investigate the neighborhood surrounding the Operetta House. Even when viewed from the street, the Opera House displays a level of architectural brilliance that befits its location on the equally prestigious Andrássy Avenue. During its lengthy existence, the opera theater, which was designed by the renowned architect Miklós Ybl, played host to a number of different heads of state. It has endured the upheavals of history, and as a result, it is frequently referred to as the most magnificent opera theater in the world! 

However, if you are merely interested in the history of the structure, guided tours are also available if you would prefer not to attend any of the performances that are regularly scheduled at the opera house. The price of a ticket for a concert typically starts around 30 Euros, but you should be prepared because the most popular features demand extensive advance preparation. Regarding the guided tours, they are accessible each and every day beginning at 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., and they provide tours in the following languages: English, German, Spanish, Italian, and French! The Hungarian State Opera House has a long and illustrious history, which may be learned about on a tour that costs approximately 10 Euros or 2900 HUF. 

The red line of the Hop On Hop Off Budapest sightseeing bus will take you right to the Hungarian State Opera House!
